Oliver Blazier Alloway
Died on 9/26/1916
Buried in Kennard Cemetery

Oliver B., son of O.S. and Emma Alloway, whose home is in Oklahoma, died at the home of his grandmother, Mrs. Blazier, in this village on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 11:25 a.m. of heart trouble after an illness of several months. His parents brought him here from Oklahoma some time ago, hoping the change might benefit him. He was an only son and was 14 years, 3 months and 26 days of age. His parents and six sisters survive beside many other relatives. He was a manly little fellow beloved by all who knew him. Just before his death he realized that he could not live and told his father and mother that he was not afraid to die, soon he became unconscious but an hour later recovered consciousness and said good-bye to all and in a few minutes his spirit took its flight. Funeral services will be held at the M.E. church at 2 o'clock, p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Rev. Stoner officiating and the burial will be made in the Kennard cemetery.

#2 = Pilot, 10/4/1916 The funeral of Oliver Blazier Alloway was held at the M.E. church last Thursday and was largely attended by relatives from Elk City, Arlington, Fremont, Omaha and this vicinity and friends of the family who came to show their respect to the bereaved ones. Oliver was past 14. He was born at Burmington Mayt 31, 1902, while his father was C. & N.W. agent at that place. He spent most of his young boyhood in Kennard, however, until moving to Lucien, Oklahoma with his parents about 5 years ago. He united with the M.E. church at this place at the age of 7 years. During his illness he was very patient and expressed his belief in God and his readiness to leave this world of sin for the better one above. He leaves his parents and 6 sisters besides his grandmother, Mrs. Blazier, to mourn for him, yet rejoicing in the knowledge that he was called home in his young innocence. Rev. Stoner officiated at the funeral and the choir sand, "Nearer My God to Thee" and "Asleep in Jesus." The sympathy of our entire community is extended the family.
